I told her its not a real good idea but of corse im not in her shoes so i wouldnt know, i wouldnt do it id wait out the whole 9 months. is it bad she is trying to do this?

  • Trying to break her own water is very dangerous to her and baby. The end of pregnancy is very uncomfortable, that's just part of it (I'm 7.5 months pregnant with my 3rd right now). She only has a month to go. She's made it through 8, what's another 1?

  • Yes, she's stupid and selfish for trying to do that. I'm sorry if I'm being too harsh, but it's the truth. A woman is pregnant for 9 months for a reason. Her baby is very likely not ready yet, and she's be greatly, greatly putting him at risk for many problems.

  • I was in severe pain for the last 3 months of my last 2 pregnancies - suck it up.

    is it really worth it to potentially harm the baby by delivering early just to get out of having the PAIN??? I think not

  • wow i would tell her to take it easy she is almost there! tell her to think of her child not herself being a mom can call for enduring pain....sry if thats too much but that is like wanting to hurt the baby

  • I agree stefanie. i'm an older mom and this is bizarre and strange that so many moms keep demanding ways basically, begging, to force birth. And one pregnancy I was 18 days past due , another pregnancy at 9 months we drove two and a half hours to the hospital in the middle of a snow storm and my third pregnancy I was 8 and 9 months pregnant in the boiling hot summer!!! So I know pregnancy discomfort!!!!!

    Maybe babies cook inside of women because we're not the best baby cooks to cook'em up any other way? i dunno just a thought.

  • yeah is bad. i eman anything can go wrong!! prolapsed cord, the baby could not have a good lung development. she could develop a severe infection so much stuff .a nd of course a dead baby.
    STUPID AND SELFISH!! YES PREGNMACY SUCKS AT THE END BUT DELIVERING A SICK OR DEAD BBAY IS WORSE!! TELL EHR TO SUCK IT UP
